The options include cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Dogecoin, and stablecoins like DAI and USD coin. The company expects cryptocurrencies to become more environmentally friendly in due course, meaning they will increasingly be used to pay for everyday goods and services. How Seety Works To use crypto coins to pay for a parking space via Seety, users can purchase Seety credits on the app. The transaction costs are the same as for the payment by credit card. Seety features an interactive map on its app that helps users locate the cheapest or free parking spots. Additionally, they can determine the prices and parking regulations for any street or parking lot in town. A community feature notifies a member in case a parking officer is spotted near their car. With Seety, users can find the cheapest parking zones, avoid parking fines and pay for their parking in two clicks.

The app, available for iOS and Android, now has 355,000 active members and expects a turnover of 400,000 euros in 2021. For 2022, the startup aims for a turnover of 2 million euros. The startup is one of the firms bootstrapped by the Belgian accelerator program Start it @KBC. Using Crypto For Everyday Transactions Using crypto to pay for parking services dates back to years ago. In 2014, a Reddit user posted that he had paid a parking ticket with Bitcoin using the online marketplace Brawker.
